a small rocky range in Valgerola
The Valgerola is the westernmost among the valleys that, from Valtellina, enter the Orobie Alps.
A good, somewhere narrow, road starting from Cosio (Morbegno) leads to the main inhabited centre, Gerola Alta
, wherefrom 3 main valleys go on toward the Orobie ridge, from West :
- the Val Vedrano
, ending at the Alpe Vedrano and surrounded by "sweet" grassy summits
- the Valle di Pietra
, ending with some lakes and surrounded by sharp and rocky summits
- the Pescegallo
, ending with two basins, the W one is a small but good (and cold)
ski-area, the E one hosts a lake.
In the W part of this (last) valley the most famous rock climbing area of the range
the Rocca is the name of the whole rocky ridge that hosts, on its N part, the Denti della Vecchia
